Why can't it be A? If someone is convinced, doesn't that mean certainity, thus 'will' instead of 'would'?

Also, in this case shouldn't the word 'convinced' be followed by 'that' to make 'convinced that' :?

I think its (B) and not (A) because 'will' is a certain event, while 'would' is a strong possibility. someone is convinced does not mean the event can be predicted.

Thanks apandey.
How about the convinced idiom?

I am convinced she will come tonight
I am convinced that she will come tonight?

Which is correct?
